Radio Frequency Identification, RFID
Radio Frequency Identification, RFID — it’s all about wireless communication! Let’s explore the RFID spectrum (band and range) in this #techexplained post.
Global differences influence the different frequencies used by RFID systems. This means that frequencies normally vary by country and region 🌍
What are the types of RFID systems?
1️⃣ Low-Frequency (LF): Frequencies from 30 KHz to 500 KHz, usually around 125 KHz. Perfect for close-range tracking.
2️⃣ High-Frequency (HF): Ranging from 3 MHz to 30 MHz, with 13.56 MHz being standard.
3️⃣ Ultra-High Frequency (UHF): Spans from 300 MHz to 960 MHz, often around 433 MHz. *Far-range UHF RFID tags can read at ranges as far as 12 meters with a passive RFID tag, whereas active tags can achieve ranges of 100 meters or more.
4️⃣ Microwave RFID: Operating at 2.45 GHz and 5.8 GHz.
RFID plays a significant role in our everyday lives, even in our kitchen appliances. Here are some of the most common uses:
🐾 Pet and livestock tracking
📦 Inventory and asset management
💳 Tap-and-go credit card payments
🚗 Vehicle tracking
Are there any additional practical applications to consider on this list of RFID use cases?
